Having problems with your Electrolux EL1000A2 Pronto Bagless Stick Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Not charging After being on the charger for a long time, 24 hours, it barely starts to run, then increases spead some but not enough to pick up. Can I get a new battery or is it just a goner?

Answers :

There could be reasons for this.
\015\012Firstly check the air waves of the hand held unit by inspecting the slide out built in crevice part - if its clogged - remove it.
\015\012Secondly, check the brush roll and bellow. The bellow can be inspected by removing one crosshead screw on the back. Be careful with this screw however, because if you lose it the bellow will not be able to stick back on without the screw being in place.
\015\012Thirdly, remove the entire brushroll by taking the floor head plate off (I believe a single dime/coin wedged into the plastic screw will undo this) and inspect the toothed spinners at either side of the brush roll - if it has hair entangled up, then clear this.
\015\012If you have done all this, the battery is only supposed to be charged for 16 hours the first time and thereafter 7 to 8 hours after each use. The Pronto isn't a particularly strong stick vac anyway and depending on how long you have owned it, it could well be the battery which is now beginning to lose initial power; unfortunately its one of the downsides to ANY cordless stick vac which has a moving brushroll. Hope that helps you!

I have a swivel sweeper, the original series, that is about one year old and is losing power. The battery has been replaced but it still seems weaker than it used to be. The brushes do not turn as quickly and the overall pick-up is not as strong as it was when it was new. Any suggestions on how to get the power back up to what it once was?

HiThank you for your queryI think what you will find is the base of the sweeper has 4 brushes, each of these brushes are run from a cog, if you can take the base apart you will find that it has been clogged up with hair and ot ... As Seen On TV Swivel Sweeper Vacuum

After removing the filter, I cannot get to battery on the Dirt Devil Kone M0213, there are two horizontal screws.

Please help or proved a diagram on how to remove the battery. Many thanks, Wesley Lennon

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??

If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel f ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

I have a Eureka Altima vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick up very well. The suction seems fine but the brush roller doesn't seem to pick up from the top of the carpet. When you lower the height of the vacuum the belt rubs and smells horribly. How can I get the vacuum to pick up better?

We bought a new home in march. It is a brand new home, with brand new First Alarm smoke/CO detectors. The very first night, we noticed the iving room (main) smoke alarm was "chirping". So we tried to replace the batteries, but when we did, all of the smoke alarms started going off (they are hardwired). We took out the new battery & dealt with the chirp. It is getting to be too much. So we are trying to fix it, but everytime we replace the batteries, the alarms are silent for a little bit, & then

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

I am afraid to pull the flem hose out as I do not know how it is attached at each end.

Isn't picking up lint. Will pick up other things like flecks of paper but will not get any fuzz or fibrous material off any rug no matter what the setting. This is a recent problem. Have owned the vacuum for awhile and never seen this issue before. Is it an easy fix? I've cleaned the brush, cleaned out the filters, cleaned the dirt tank. Nothing changed.

Is the brush turning on the bottom of the machine ? If not It could be clogedup with stuff or the belt could be worn on it and it will turn but as soon as it contacts the floor it will stop turning. The belt is easy to replace by removing screw ... Bissell 3576 CleanView II Bagless Upright Vacuum

Poor suction The actual sweeper seems to work ok, but the hose attachment has some suction but not enough to pick up things I think it should and not enough to make the power brush spin. I've checked everywhere I can for clogs, but I can't see anything. And there doesn't seem to be any way to check to hose itself for clogs. I've cleaned out the container and the filters, but there's still a problem.

Check the inlet down by the brush roll, make sure it is open, if it is then the hose itself must have a clog. If the hose comes off, drop something like a marble in one end and see it it comes out the other end, if it doesn't then you have a clog. ...
